Umass Athletics announced Tuesday that they have decided to cancel the 2020 football season.
In a statement posted on their website read, "After consulting with university, state and public health officials, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 UMass football season," said athletic director Ryan Bamford. "We have been in constant communication with university leadership and our football staff since March, with the health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches and staff remaining our top priority. The continuing challenges surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic posed too great of a risk, and we reached the conclusion that attempting to play a season would not have placed the members of our program in the safest situation possible."
